Addiction Alert! My children won't put these books down! Apr 5, 2008
This series of books is captivating! I enjoy them every bit as much as my children do. Even my nearly 14-year old son cannot put them down! We own about 4 of them now - but my children have requested the entire series. Little-by-little, hopefully we can do that for them!
The books are exciting, moving, and are great faith-builders. The missionaries featured become heroes in the eyes of my children. I cannot recommend this series high enough. Hope you'll give it a try!
Wow! Nov 21, 2006
This biography challenged me to pray. Lillian was an aggresive servant of the Lord and much of her aggressiveness was on her knees. What she was able to do was remeniscent of the Gladys Aylward story. A marvelous and compelling story.
